Gross or what?! – 10th October 1997

Friday 10th At lunch today I saw quite a lot of Dougie. He was outside our form room when I took my bag up and he was looking at me so I smiled at him. He smiled back.

After I came back in school, I went with Freda and Olivia into a practice room in the Music block so Freda could practice the kit. There were a few lads in there already but Mr P cleared them out. Most of our friends ended up in the small room and so did Dougie and Jez Greenhalgh.

Jez said something to Emma about Dougie coming in to shag her. I didn’t really hear why he said it but it made Olivia laugh. Mr P then came in and told us all to get out except Freda but as soon as he went, we all crowded round the doorway.

Dougie kept coming in and seeing what we were doing and at one point Olivia said, “Doesn’t it look a bit suspicious with you in a room full of girls?!” That then caused Freda to say, “Especially with Tess standing in the corner!” I sort of gave her a disgusted look and Dougie smiled sarkily and went out again.

I was standing in the corridor later on with Emma when Dougie walked up to us and stood up really close to me and said, “Are you coming ice skating?” I told him I didn’t know but probably. You see, Hayley, Emma and Freddie Bevan had all decided in Geography that we’re going ice skating in the hols and Dougie and I are going too. It started off as the cinema but it changed for some reason. Dougie said he can’t skate coz he hasn’t been for ages but the other lads (including Jez) go every week.

The bell went and we all went up to our form rooms. Dougie was lined up with a few other people but he was basically on his bill. I was going from the stairs to the form room so I could see what he was doing and if he was watching me. He did once! [Probably only because he was wondering what he feck I was doing going back and forth from the stairs.]

We had P.S.E. last thing which is when I see Dougie most, usually on Fridays. It was our last lesson on careers with Mrs L and she was going round the class asking us all what we wanted to do. I was the only one who said I didn’t know and I don’t really. I quite like the thought of working with animals, you know, as a vet or something.

Well, Dougie said he would like to be a journalist or a writer I never imagined him as that but it quite suits him really. I like it!

Orchestra was good. Every time Mr P mentioned my name, I glanced over at Dougie (who is opposite me at the other side of the room) to see what he did. It made him look up usually. Emma also said she saw him craning his neck around Robert Osborne when he walked between us!

Dougie was doing the bells for a Christmassy song and I looked up at him, smiling coz he looked funny sitting there with bells and he looked up and smiled back. We ended up both laughing and I couldn’t play my flute!

Woah! I know all along that Davis fancied Lizzie. Then today in Maths he sent her a note asking her out! Urgh! Gross or what?! I think I’m the only one who doesn’t think it’s ”kinda sweet”. She hasn’t given him an answer yet.

She went out with Ralph too. She seems to attract pricks! [Er… Without giving away too much, I may or may not do a U-turn on that in a couple of months.]

I’m going now.

♥ BYE! ♥
